    In fairness, I don't remember reports of his demise so much as posters such as myself saying expectations for Burdi were ridiculous when he signed.

    The Twins need to see if Romero can play 1st base on a semi regular basis, he doesn't look like he has the glove for 3rd base. If Collabello doesn't pan out, Romero would be in a much better...

    Just pointing out people need to calm down and let the kid pitch. Some here wanted him in a Twins uniform right now when he isn't ready. Heard the same crazy things over the years about Wimmers,...

    But how could that be? I've been told repeatedly on these boards that BUrdi is already better than Burton, Guerrier, Thielbar, Duensing, Swarzak, Deduno, and Perkins?

    We have no idea, and Tonkin certainly hasn't given me any reason to believe in limited innings. It feels like the AAA pitchers are like a back up QB for the Vikings, everyone loves them now, but...

    I guess not, I thought there had been more. Very ugly chart to say the least.

    What is the point of having Deduno and Swarzak in the pen? They are basically the same thing. Any chance the Twins swing a minor deal with one of them for a bench player?

    I thought Nieto was up there in slump territory as well. I wonder how many warning track balls he has in that 0-31? Unlucky and overcompensating. Will the next hit be a flare or a dinger?

    Deduno is not an option in the pen imho. Either give him more starts to get it figured out, or he is the guy you send backing. Darnell gets the first shot.

    Fien is the 7th inning guy. We need...

    Exactly. And will Florimon even start a game in the next two weeks? Oh the horrors of Florimon sitting on the bench and playing late innings for two weeks! It's a non issue.

    Tonkin and Johnson thus far look like AAAA pitchers to me. Nice guys to have around for 15 days stints, wouldn't be really happy to see them in big spots in a division race.

    Or I could say did you see the game today? Guerrier and Burton with 2.3 IP without allowing a hit. One game means next to nothing.

    Again, I don't know how you can be so confident when he hasn't faced anything remotely close to a MLB line up. Also, I doubt 21.5yrs old is his prime.

    Based on what? I have a feeling if you sent down Thielbar and Guerrier and replaced them with Achter and Pino you would be saying the opposite. I don't see how you can judge apples to oranges.

    The grass is always greener on the other side. How do you know Achter or Pino would be better than Matty in the Bigs? How do you know Pino would be able to adjust to the role in the pen?

    Just checking in, in the off season I tend to lurk and check out a few articles. Looking forward to a more respectable season with 70-75 wins and more hope for the future.

    Collabello. He has no position on this team except as a PH. If Kubel is around, he likely will fill that role as well.

    I think this was an odd choice considering Mastro and Fryer as others have said. In the long term though, it really means nothing. This only shows how little value Hendricks has to the Twins.

    Crowded just means we actually have bats on the bench for once. Gardy likes to give his bench more at bats than most, so I won;t worry one bit about a crowded outfield.

    I think it has to be Nishi. No one mentioned Brett Merriman. I agree whole heartedly with Klingbeck, Stahoviak, McCarty, Nieto, Sal Butera.

    Which Ortiz sucked? Junior or J.R.? I can't remember.

    What's wrong with having a little depth? Everyone is assuming there are no injuries to Mauer, Morneau, Willingham, or Doumit.

    People keep saying what if Morneau isn't back, what if he gets hurt. ...
